I spent Monday exploring Albuquerque and New Mexico’s Turquoise Trail, Hwy 14.

Madrid, NM: Shop Sign

I can see that New Mexico earns it’s title of the Land of Enchantment. The landscape is stark, yet dramatic and there’s so much art, crafts and jewelry. I was surprised by Albuquerque’s Buddhist temple, which I found by accident. The Thai people who were there were so welcoming and friendly. I loved discovering Madrid, NM as the prices were much better than Santa Fe’s.

I also got to see the Chinese consulate where I waited for over 2 hours to submit my visa application. More on that next week. I do think my observation that entering a country’s consulate is like going to that country, it prepares you for some of the attitudes and the pace of life in that part of the world.

    • If you are inspired and write something, do share it with me. I’d love to read any resulting story, poem, what-have-you. If you use the photo credit me – Susan Kelly.
